Indo-German brand Cocccon, helmed by fashion designer Chandra Prakash Jha, is the world’s largest manufacturer of ‘peace silk’.
Apupa slowly and meticulously spins a cocoon and one fine day emerges as a beautiful butterfly to flutter away. But what if you needed the cocoon for silk production? The butterfly would probably never see the light of day. It was this vision that disturbed Germany-based Indian fashion designer Chandra Prakash Jha. It spurred him to make silk in such a way that no silkworms would be harmed in the process. It was a collection made from this silk that we saw on display at the Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) 2021. Not only that, the collection also won him the German Sustainability Awards—Design, for this year.
